George Zimmerman has filed a $265 Million lawsuit against Democratic presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren.

The former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin says in the suit that both candidates damaged his reputation while paying tribute to Trayvon Martin.

NBC6 reported: In the lawsuit, Zimmerman says he was defamed by Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Elizabeth Warren for “political gain in misguided and malicious attempts to bolster their standings amongst African-American voters”.

The tributes in question were a pair of tweets the two candidates sent out on February 5th.
